OK, here's what I'm thinking. I don't want to mess with the stated (implied?) purpose of jboss-logging-jdk at all, so I'm going to produce a small separate artifact, jboss-logmanager. Unless someone says otherwise, I'm going to put it into the projects area of the jbossas repository. This way, anyone who wants to have a non-busted JDK logmanager can reuse this project without pulling in any baggage.
